Hello

I was a Senior Patrol Agent with the U.S. Border Patrol in San Diego and a Senior Intelligence Agent at San Diego Sector Headquarters from 1995 to 2001 when I resigned in protest due to the rampant corruption and brutality I witnessed on a daily basis.  Since 2015 I speak out on national and local news, community panels, podcasts and radio. I am regularly consulted by academics, journalists, humanitarians, and lawmakers. I am often interviewed for outlets such as The New York Times, Newsweek, The Guardian, Washington Post, NPR, Telemundo, CNN, and many more. I have served as an ambassador for Define American and the Southern Border Communities Coalition (SBCC). In April 2022, my constant advocacy for Border Patrol accountability, whistleblowing and knowledge led to the POGO report “Protecting the Predators at DHS”, and in May 2022, my work as an investigator with SBCC pressured CBP to announce the shutdown of Border Patrol’s CIT units, the largest shadow-police cover-up group in the USA.  I am the author of the acclaimed memoir Against the Wall: My Journey From Border Patrol Agent to Immigrant Rights Activist (Heliotrope Books, 2022).
